    Anti-Nuke Rally Returns


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     On Nov. 30, polargrape photographed a peaceful anti-nuclear rally in Samcheok, Gangwon, South Korea. The rally lasted about 2 hours.
    polargrape says there have been several rallies like this one over the last year, and this is the third he has attended. "The rallies in the past were attended by all ages, but today's rally was predominately seniors and women. Of the three rallies that I've been to, this was the smallest turn-out, although the sun was shining, the temperatures have been quite chilly all week and may have played a role in the lower turn-out."
    He says this rally had a much calmer atmosphere than others he has attended. He did not witness any altercations. "Today's rally almost felt like it was more about educating the people as they paraded around the city," he says. "The previous rallies and demonstrations were much more heated to the point of physical altercations between the anti and the pro nuclear sides, although no one was ever hurt."
